I wanted to make this soup even though I was missing 2 main ingredients--the asparagus and the leeks! But I made it work anyway. There is a variation noted at the bottom of the recipe for using broccoli instead of asparagus. And I know that leeks are similar enough to onions that I could substitute. I did try something different though, instead of steaming the broccoli garnish, I decided to try roasting the little sliced broccoli tops...and then I threw in some sliced baby bella mushrooms too, just because I had them.
Our Cookbook Blog
Our Cookbook ~ What We Cook, is a compilation of every recipe we (Janice and Carissa) cook - recipes from our cookbook collections, our recipe boxes, and our heads! We set up this blog for friends and family who have our cookbook to let them see pictures we post of the recipes in the book, and also for us to note any corrections, revisions, or additions to What We Cook. We encourage people who are cooking our recipes to let us know how the recipes turn out and any suggestions they might want to make.
In addition, we will be sharing some of our new recipes (along with pictures) that are not in our cookbook. We hope you will help us out and test recipes and give us your comments.
